Champaign Housing Authority Gun Policy Questioned

Housing Authority of Champaign County
Housing Authority of Champaign County

An attorney representing the Housing Authority of Champaign County is defending a policy allowing residents to keep guns on its property.

Joliet-based attorney Eric Hanson said the resolution is the result of much research, and carefully follows in Illinois’ new concealed carry measure.

Champaign-based Guns Save Life says that the authority’s requirement that weapons be stored in a locked box denies immediate access, and is unconstitutional. 

The group also objects to the requirement that residents provide a description of their weapon to the authority, saying the state has sole authority over gun registration with the passing concealed carry. 

Guns Save Life is promising a legal battle over the policy.
